I have worked as an LVN in ED, ICU and hospice. Having taken care of my mother and father when they both had CVAs, I know the meaning of compassion, and why it is very important to a family member. I have had ACLS, both as a caregiver and instructor. I became a caregiver as a result of being in the military, and as a result, I found this was my niche in life. I find it rewarding to see a smile on an individuals face when they know that they were truly taken care of. Believe when I say this is rewarding. I grew up on a farm on Oklahoma, so I learned very early about doing a good job and how it feels when you know that you have done so.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
